Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin III

Sound — 10
Not the best but still a great album by Led Zeppelin. The third self-titled Led Zeppelin album released in late 1970, is one of the more folk sounding albums with a Jimmy Page playing a lot more acoustic guitar, such as on Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Gallows Pole, Tangerine, That's The Way, and then there are also the hard rocking Zeppelin tunes like Immigrant Song and Celebration Day as well as the bluesier sounding Since I've Been Loving You. This is an album I recommend for those who enjoy folk music or acoustic rock.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics aren't the strongest point of III, but what really makes this album great is Robert Plant's voice who was in his prime around this time, more noticable in Immigrant Song.

Overall Impression — 10
Although not my favorite album by Zeppelin they still did a great job, this is one of the albums that keeps me playing some acoustic every once in awhile. The sound isn't much of what I'm used to but it still sounds awesome and I constantly find myself listening to this.
